Raiders At Vikings Score Update: Carson Palmer Sneaks In For A Score

The train is officially off the tracks in Minnesota, ladies and gentlemen.

After the Raiders scored on a 2-yard Michael Bush touchdown run, Minnesota Vikings' returner Lorenzo Booker coughed up the ball on the ensuing kickoff when he inexplicably tried to hurdle his own player. The Raiders' DeMarcus Van Dyke recovered, and the Raiders were set up on the Minnesota 16-yard line with just over a minute left in the first half.

It didn't take much for the Raiders to get into the end zone, and they capped the short drive with quarterback Carson Palmer sneaking into the end zone from a yard out for the score.

After the Vikings took an early 7-0 lead, the Raiders have scored 24 unanswered points. They definitely look like a team that resides in first place in their division, while the Vikings look like a team that is headed straight for a top five pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.

We're going to halftime at the Metrodome, and the Minnesota Vikings trail the Oakland Raiders by a score of 24-7.
